Carlton is Excellent

l that Carlton is an excellent counselor who has an incredible skill set when it comes to diagnosing and managing a wide variety of situations and conditions. He is an active listener, non-judgmental, and someone I feel comfortable opening up to. He has helped me successfully navigate challenging situations in my life, and I continue to see and trust Carlton to help me continue my growth as a person. I like that he works in the evenings as that allows me to fit counseling into my busy schedule. I drive an hour to see him because I believe in the quality of his therapy. Professionally, he is my favorite counselor to refer patients to because he is easy to access, flexible in his schedule, and I consistently get positive feedback from my patients on their experiences with him. I highly recommend him to anyone needing personal or couples counseling. While I personally do not have issues with addiction, I am aware that he is especially skilled at helping patients manage substance abuse / addictions.

He makes you feel validated but at the same time doesn’t sugar coat anything, he’s tells you what you need to hear. He truly had a passion for wanting to help people. He is gentle, kind and caring. I’m thankful I found him and have him as a safe place to go. I highly recommend Carlton if you are looking for an amazing counselor who will love and care about you.
